Geophysical Research Letters

Geophysical Research Letters publishes short, concise research letters that present scientific advances that are likely to have immediate influence on the research of other investigators. GRL letters can focus on a specific discipline or apply broadly to the geophysical science community.

Global Biogeochemical Cycles

Global Biogeochemical Cycles Includes papers in the broad areas of global change involving the geosphere and biosphere. Marine, hydrologic, atmospheric, extraterrestrial, geologic, biologic, and human causes of and response to environmental change on timescales of tens, thousands, and millions of years are the purview of the journal.

International Journal for Numerical Methods in Fluids

The expressed intention of the Journal is the dissemination of information relating to the development, refinement, and application of computer-based numerical techniques for solving problems in fluids. These include, but are not limited to, the Finite Difference and Finite Element methods, in each of which the manner of imposing boundary conditions to obtain a numerical solution can be quite important. The submission of manuscripts in which the primary contribution is experimental is encouraged, if such results are compared with previously published numerical predictions. Also encouraged are papers in which an established numerical technique is used to study some of the subtleties associated with the physics of fluids. Indeed, even papers presenting closed form solutions directly related to engineering problems and demonstrated to be effective will be published.

Journal of Applied Meterology (JAM)

Publishes applied research related to physical meteorology, cloud physics, hydrology, weather modification, satellite meteorology, boundary layer processes, air pollution meteorology (including dispersion and chemical processes), agricultural and forest meteorology, and applied meteorological numerical models of all types.

Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology (JTECH)

Publishes papers describing the instrumentation and methodology used in atmospheric and oceanic research including computational techniques, methods for data acquisition, processing, and interpretation, and information systems and algorithms.

Journal OF Climate (JCLI)

Publishes articles on climate research and, therefore, welcomes manuscripts concerned with large-scale variability of the atmosphere, oceans, and land surface; changes in the climate system (including those caused by human activities); and climate simulation and prediction.

Journal of Computational Physics

Journal of Computational Physics thoroughly treats the computational aspects of physical problems, presenting techniques for the numerical solution of mathematical equations arising in all areas of physics. The journal seeks to emphasize methods that cross disciplinary boundaries.

Journal of Geophysical Research

This is the Journal of Geophysical Research

Journal of Hydrometeorology (JHM)

Publishes research related to the modeling, observing, and forecasting of processes related to water and energy fluxes and storage terms, including interactions with the boundary layer and lower atmosphere, and including processes related to precipitation, radiation, and other meteorological inputs.

Journal of Physical Oceanography (JPO)

Publishes research related to the physics of the ocean and to processes operating at its boundaries. Theoretical and modeling studies are welcome, especially those that are linked to observations. Papers that investigate interactions with other components of the earth system (e.g., ocean–atmosphere, physical–biological and physical–chemical interactions) as well as studies of other fluid systems (e.g., lakes and laboratory tanks) are also invited, as long as their focus is on understanding the ocean.

Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences

Publishes basic research related to the physics, dynamics, and chemistry of the atmosphere of the Earth and other planets, with emphasis on the quantitative and deductive aspects of the subject.

This includes papers on numerical techniques and data assimilation techniques that apply to the atmosphere and/or ocean environment.

Numerical Ocean Circulation Modeling

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the models and methods employed in the rapidly advancing field of numerical ocean circulation modeling. For those new to the field, concise reviews of the equations of oceanic motion, sub-grid-scale parameterization, and numerical approximation techniques are presented and four specific numerical models, chosen to span the range of current practice, are described in detail. For more advanced users, a suite of model test problems is developed to illustrate the differences among models, and to serve as a first stage in the quantitative evaluation of future algorithms. The extensive list of references makes this book a valuable text for both graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the marine sciences and in related fields such as meteorology, and climate and coupled biogeochemical modeling.

Ocean Dynamics

Oceanologica Acta

Oceanologica Acta is a scientific journal of French origin, with an international audience.


Paleoceanography focuses on original contributions dealing with the marine sedimentary record from the present ocean basins and margins and from exposures of ancient marine sediments on the continents. Approaches include sedimentology; isotope geochemistry; paleontology; seismic stratigraphy; physical, chemical, and biological oceanography; marine geology and geophysics; Quaternary geology; and modeling. Contributions are global and regional rather than local; and cover all ages (Precambrian to the Quaternary, including modern analogs).

South African Journal of Science

The Journal was established in 1903 as the proceedings of the annual meetings of the SA Association for the Advancement of Science. The annual volume became a monthly publication in August 1947. Since 1973, the Journal has in turn had a close association with Macmillan Journals in London (the publisher of Nature), the Joint Council of Scientific Societies (JCSS), the Associated Scientific and Technical Societies of SA (AS&TS), and the Foundation for Education, Science and Technology. Since April 1997, at the request of the Department of Arts, Culture, Science and Technology, the management of the Journal has been the responsibility of the NRF. The editorial staff are housed in the NRF building in Pretoria.

The Journal of Shellfish Research

Weather and Forcasting (WAF)

Publishes articles on forecasting and analysis techniques, forecast verification studies, and case studies useful to forecasters. In addition, submissions that report on changes to the suite of operational numerical models and statistical postprocessing techniques, and articles that demonstrate the transfer of research results to the forecasting community.
